Thread: Remington R-51

    I wonder what the sight picture looks like. I know the rear sight is shaped to keep from snagging on draw, but it looks like it is on backwards. I hope the finish on the slide looks as good on the production units as it does in the photo.

    Ohh and it is dying for a set of wood panels. This feature is something that majority of the other carry pistols dont have.

    Is that a grip safety? The grip panels look interesting - those screws (If they are) look like rivets.

    I am pretty sure it is a grip safety.

    I think there are little hex heads recessed in the counterbore of head.

    Yes, it has a grip safety.

    BTW - the model 51 does not have a great trigger, does not stay open on the last round fired, has a magazine disconnect and is rather a PITA to field strip. The slide has to be removed with the hammer cocked while pulling on the bore end of the barrel.

    So I hope the R-51 gets rid of some of this.

    Here's a short video from Gunblast. Not much, but it does show how the pistol breaks down.

    I don't know if I trust GunBlast's reviews or not... I've never seen him give a bad review

    The videos show the action stays open after the last round is fired.

    That's good to know. The 51 did not.

    Since you actually have one of the originals, how easy do you think it would be to limp wrist? I saw somewhere on the web that the recoil spring isn't as bad as one would think, but you know what that's worth. I ask because my tiny daughter can actually limp wrist her M&P9 into not resetting the trigger and has trouble chambering a round. She can do it, but it's a struggle.

    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    That's true. I think Jeff is just a gun guy and likes about everything he fires. Not a bad gig. A couple of years ago at the Wanenmacher show I realized he was standing next to me and we talked for a bit. Nice guy.

    Good question. With the delayed blowback operation of the locking breech mechanism, the recoil spring is supposed to be lighter so chambering a round should be much easier for her. My guess is that limp wristing should be less of a concern and have less felt recoil as well.
